At the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, Jim Marchese bragged about earning $8.5 million this past year. Many housewives and fans alike collectively rolled their eyes at what many believed to be a vast over exaggeration by Jim.
Turns out the laugh is on us because Jim actually did earn $8.5 million this past year! How did he do it exactly?
Jim mades his million by being a wistleblower and its not the first time his wistleblowing has lead to a windfall in the millions. A few years back Jim blew the wistle on bous cancer drugs and it earned him $1.6 million. Although this time Jim’s wistleblowing has given him an even bigger paycheck of $8.5 million!
Turns out Jim’s company Mortgage Now was one of four companies to be included in a massive $170 million payout.
Looks like Jim and Amber Marchese might actually be the only RHONJ couple with actual money in the bank!
Are you surprised Jim was telling the truth? Do you think Jim’s the only cast member with real money?
